Pronoun and its types

  1. 1. Pronoun A pronoun is a word used instead of a common noun or a proper noun. The word pronoun means for a noun and it called a noun’s deputy. "Pro" + "noun" typically means "in place, of, instead of" a noun or a noun phrase. Pronouns, then, replace nouns and can also refer back to nouns . Examples- I, you, me, his, we, she, he, her, they, it etc. (Take sentences from examples of each types and make it 10 examples of pronouns.) Types of Pronoun 1. Personal Pronoun – Personal Pronouns are those which stand for the names of persons. They take the place of nouns and are used as the subject of the verb in a sentence. Examples – I got a free pass. My aim is high. Rosy is the daughter of mine. He called me yesterday. He is my father. We are busy now. We love our country. These books are ours. Teachers like us Our religion is English 2. REFLEXIVE PRONOUNS – Reflexive Pronouns are those which are objects and which refer to the same persons as the subjects of the verbs. They end in self & selves. ExamplesI washed myself We organized the party all by ourselves Be careful not to cut yourself with that knife You have all enjoyed yourselves The poor man lives all by himself in an old house She herself cooked the dinner
  2. 2. They have proved themselves to be right I love myself You can do it yourself He cooks himself 3. Demonstrative Demonstrative Pronouns are those which point out things, as this, these, that and those. Because they convey a high degree of specificity and distinctiveness in pointing out ("demonstrating") a referent; They are showing words. ExamplesThis is my answer That was too much for me These are good mangoes Hand me those candles, please Are those the flowers you picked? This is my house That was not good Those are fruits This is not right That was nice 4. Relative Pronoun Reltive Pronouns are those which relate to some noun going before in the sentence as who, whose, whom, which, what, that. A relative pronoun does the work of a conjunction as well as a pronoun. ExamplesThe man who stole the car has been caught The man whom you accused is not guilt The woman whose house I rented is my cous The house which you see was built long ago I mean what I say Take anything that you like Here the girl whom you wanted to meet
  3. 3. The happy laughter that made me smile came from the three-year-old who lives next door I know the man who lives here. This is the boy / girl who works hard 5. INTERROGATIVE PRONOUN Interrogative Pronouns are those which ask questions, as, who, which, what, whom, whose. Examples Who built that house? Which is your house? Whose is this book? Which do you prefer, tea or coffee? Which of the boys saw him? What is the matter? Who is he talking to? Who are those people? Whom do you want? Whose is this umbrella? 6. INDEFINITE PRONOUN Indefinite Pronouns are those which refer to persons or things in a general or indefinite way. Examples All are quite safe Many were rescused from the flood Some are born great Few escaped unhurt
  4. 4. None of them was clever I did not see any of them Do good to others One should love one’s neighbour Much can be said on both sides 7. DISTRIBUTIVE PRONOUN Distributive Pronouns are those which refer to persons or things taken one at a time, as each, either, neither. For this reason they are always singular and as such followed by the verb in the singular. Examples- We may take either of these two books Neither of them writes well Each of these girls deserved a reward You can either use it Each of you will be suspend You can either choose him He can neither speak You can either take Each of them will retain this Each of one can do 8. Possessive Pronouns Possessive Pronoun indicates close possession or ownership or relationship of a thing/person to another thing/person. ExampleThis book is mine. That car is hers. Your book is old. Mine is new. The pen on the table is mine. The smallest cup is yours. The voice is hers. The car is ours not theirs. I have lost my camera. May I use yours? They received your letter. Did you received theirs. That book was mine.
